Donating to the Association of Carers
We receive over 80% of our funding from East Sussex County Council, but still need to find around £45,000 each year to maintain our current services.
The kind of things that we particularly need additional money for are:
- Paying for volunteer’s training and to reimburse their expenses
We raise funds in a variety of ways, such as collections, online giving, donations and fundraising events.

Leaving a Legacy
Gifts left in Wills are a very valuable source of income for the Association of Carers.
Making a Will
It is important that everyone makes a Will to ensure that your estate is passed on according to your wishes. Leaving a Will ensures that your wishes are carried out to the letter, leaving no doubt or uncertainty for those you leave behind. A Will can also include a gift to a charity or charities of your choice.
Anyone can do it!
Anyone can leave a charitable gift in their Will. It can be a simple cash payment or a percentage of the remaining or residuary estate.
Should I consider The Association of Carers?
If ever the time is right for you to include a gift to a charity in your Will, please consider The Association of Carers. By leaving such a gift you will be helping to secure the provision of our services for unpaid Carers throughout East Sussex.

View from a regular donor:
“I am donating to the Charity in deep gratitude for the Charity supporting me and providing me with a volunteer to sit with my husband every week, which enables me to go out every week to go to a local Pottery studio and practice my art there. The volunteer is a wonderful person, so sensitive and positive and perfectly fits with our needs”
